I love dune for the proximity to this amazing clean beach, well maintained swimming pool and all the comforts of a modern hotel while maintaining the rustic vibe through its various theme houses. I love the bicycles that allow you to roam around the resort easily. My only concern is food...both in quality and speed of service. Its either oily... More

An evening at The Dune is nothing less than amazing. - Little heavy on your wallet - Very calm and soothing place - Good crowd - very down to earth ambiance - Food is good, if not great - Beach is close and you wont see too many people on the beach :)

This is one of the best resorts I have been. It is a bit expensive but that is worth the money. Very friendly staff - they make you feel at home. Nice ambiance - almost private beach - clean and sandy beach - good to savor sun rise. Swimming pool was very well maintained Definitely recommend to my friends.

We have traveled to The Dune on December 25th for 5 days for our anniversary. The resort has a huge property where you feel like you are in the middle of a jungle! Very well maintained and the staff here is very prompt to attend you. They are very cooperative and polite. Especially the manager Umapati!!! He takes care of... More

I visited the Dune resort mainly because I loved their concept. 1) We saw lots of rats, mosquitoes and spider nets everywhere 2) Please be careful with your luggage. Rats had bite our luggage bags (Staff were least bothered) 3) Food is very very very expensive. Restaurant staff were very quick if you order something which are charged, but if... More

the dune offers excellent value for money. this place must, at some time, have been a 5 star hotel. then something happened - the owners stopped investing and even maintenance is poor. the result is a run-down feel, which does no harm to the extreme charm of the place , to the contrary. if this hotel was in perfect shape...

This hotel is a twenty minute ride from Pondicherry and a wonderful way of having a beach and resort holiday while enjoying all that Pondicherry and Auroville have to offer. The staff were really helpful in the run up to our stay, arranging a pick up from Chennai at the last minute and once we got there. Oh and we... More

We stayed at dunes for 2 nights. The property is on a clean beach, the kids loved the beach. The food menu has tasty and healthy options. The property has lot of greenery and feels nice. The day we checked in the DVD player was not working and the water in the bathroom was not draining. But then their staff... More

We stayed here one night (new year's eve) and had a good time. The pool is good, also the beach (though the waves were too big for swimming). We stayed in the "beach housr", which was nice. The premises are well kept, and the surroundings are nice. Good for getting some peace and quiet away from pondicherry. Downsides: we had... More
